I have a raspberry pi and omron sensor d6t. This sensor comes with connector in which you can connect harness cable to it. It looks like below:

For my development purpose I connect the wires from sensor cable to breadboard and the from breadboard I connected it to raspberry pi male pins using male to female jumper wires. Now my development work in complete and I need to present this. So I am looking for some type of connector which can be directly connected to male pings of pi. But I am unable to find this online. Initially I thought the wires from the harness cable can be connected to frc connector but I am not sure if this can work.

Can anyone please suggest some good solution for this. Please help. Thanks

  • Du-pont jumper cables are readily available on ebay and in many retailers. Whether these will attach to your device is impossible to say. You are unlikely to find any ready made connector - and you haven't specified what pins you want to use. If not you will need to cut and solder to the existing. – Milliways Jun 23 '20 at 7:19
  • @Milliways This sensor is connected to 2,3,5,9 pins of the pi. – S Andrew Jun 23 '20 at 7:24
  • You can use a lever connector in combination with the Du-pont jumper cables to connect 2 wires without soldering. – Swedgin Jun 23 '20 at 8:07
  • @Swedgin Can you please share the link to image of level connector. Please thanks – S Andrew Jun 23 '20 at 8:34
  • @SAndrew Something like this: i.ytimg.com/vi/n8gLG6c-iKc/maxresdefault.jpg . So eg. WAGO 221 connectors – Swedgin Jun 23 '20 at 8:56

There isn't really a connector to connect those cables to the male pins on your RPi. A common solderless method is using lever connectors like the WAGO 221 series.

You use a female-to-male Du-pont jumper cable from the RPi to the lever connector, and connect one of the wires fo the sensor to the other hole on the lever connector.
